The 2021 QUIZ was online!

What is a Pop Maths Quiz?

The Pop Maths Quiz is a TEAM competition that runs a bit like a Pub Quiz but without any alcohol!

Teams consist of 4 students (under 19 years) who, during the Quiz, work as a team to attempt to solve a number of questions on a wide range of mathematical topics.

They then have the opportunity to give their answers via an electronic response system.

Not all questions require specific A-level maths knowledge but all questions have a mathematical flavour.

What are the prizes?

There are substantial prizes awarded to the winners on the day and the school names will be published on this page. Certificates will be awarded to all winners and entrants.

It wasn't possible to award cash prizes in 2021 as the Quiz was hosted online because of COVID restrictions. We welcomed teams from Merseyside, Wirral, Cheshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire, East Anglia, Essex and the Channel Islands
